I am looking for MS word 2007 add-ins. Where I can I find these?

I am looking for MS word 2007 add-ins. Specifically, I would like to add on a button to the ribbon or toolbar that will add a section symbol to my document. Does anyone know of such an add in?

Why don't you just use the Insert, Symbol command?  Once you insert the symbol sign, it will stay in the list.  You don't need an add-in.

When you say 'section symbol' what is that?
You can right click on any toolbar button and pick customize to configure the toolbar/ribbon.

Right-clicking and selecting customize will customize the "Quick Access Toolbar".... not the ribbon.

For any standard function in Word 2007, if you can find the place in the ribbon toolbar where you can click on it, then you can right-click it and select "Add to Quick Access Tool Bar", and it will always be available in the upper left-hand corner of the window, next to the Office Button, Save, Undo and Repeat icons.

If you can't find the command you are looking for on the ribbon, then look through all available Word 2007 commands by right-clicking any button on the ribbon bar, selecting "Customize Quick Access Bar".  Then, select "All Commands" in the "Choose commands from" drop down to see the universe of assignable functions.  Once you find your command, select it and hit the Add>> button to add it to the Quick Access menu.

If the function you require is not built-in, then you can write a macro to accomplish the task, then add it to the Quick Access Menu by right-clicking any button on the ribbon bar, selecting "Customize Quick Access Bar", selecting "Macros" for the "Choose commands from" drop down, and then selecting/adding your macro to the Quick Access menu.

The easiest solution is probably just to use the Symbol Dialog to assign a short-cut key (like SHIFT+CTRL+S) to the section symbol, so you can just hit that key combination anytime you want to insert that character.  Just click on the section symbol in the Special Characters tab of the Symbol Dialog, click the Shortcut Key button, and hit the combination of keys you want to assign.
